Smooth Collie - SAC classes. A. (1) 1 Tiranti's Wynele Sea Captain Earthfield. 6 month blue dog with lots of promise. Super temperament. Head is clean with a nice eye and well set ears that he used well. Good body but would prefer slightly more length of back but this may come in time. Moved and showed very well. C (7,1). 1 Griffiths' Alopex Little Summer. 8 and a half year sable bitch. Loved her overall shape and balance. Super head with a lovely eye giving a sweet expression. Nice flat skull and clean stop. Was a little reluctant to use her ears but when she did, they are placed correctly. Lovely length of neck set into good front angulation. Good depth to height ratio and length of back. Good rear angulation which enabled her to move with reach and drive. 2nd Benton's Ch Oakestelle Vivaldi. 4 year tri dog. Clean masculine head with well placed stop and flat skull. Super eye and ears bang on top to give a good expression. Super depth of chest and good angulation front and rear. Super bone and condition. Moved and showed very well.
